US Embassy in IraqThe U.S. Embassy in Baghdad said Thursday that it was attacked by terrorist groups, the latest amid a series of attacks targeting U.S. personnel in Iraq and Syria.

“The U.S. Embassy compound was attacked this evening by terrorist groups attempting to undermine Iraq’s security, sovereignty and international relations,” the embassy said on Twitter. “We have long said that these sorts of reprehensible attacks are an assault not just on diplomatic facilities, but on the sovereignty of Iraq itself.”

The statement didn’t provide further details on what transpired.

The Associated Press, citing Iraqi security officials, reported that at least four rockets targeted the embassy’s Green Zone and that three of the rockets struck within the perimeter of the embassy. The fourth hit a school in a nearby residential area.
